That didn’t take long: Same-sex “marriage” murders friendship [Darleen Click]

Unfuckingbelievable

BTW the purpose of pushing SSM is not to be fair to the historically disadvantaged: it’s to provide a pretext to engage in the actions listed above. The Left wants us God-botherers discredited and humiliated and as silent as the tomb. Pushing SSM is about the niftiest way to do that.

Ernst‘s response

Well, that, and to finish the job of atomizing the individual by eradicating what remains of the intermediating bonds that shelter individuals from the all encompassing state. […]

Praise Ford and pass the Soma!

Bert & Ernie are iconic figures for children, showing a long and abiding friendship between two people who are very different. Friendships matter and we can all find ways of caring for people who are not just like us.

And The New Yorker crudely murders it all with the crude, smutty snickering that they weren’t just buddies, but fuck-buddies all along.

What a great strategy for Leftcultists to bully children into the cult. Target same-sex friends and start whisper campaigns about their “real” behavior. If the targets protest, call them homophobic bigots for thinking there is anything wrong with being gay lovers.

Bingo, friendship destroyed. All submit to Mother Parent-of-indeterminate-gender State.

I want to find who made that cover and slap his/her face.

  1. yes and 9 clowns rule us.

  2. no only 5 clowns in clown suits rule us

  3. Di also said some very good things about the conflation of intimacy with the sex act that happen to tie in with my BNW reference too.

  4. that might could be iconic

  5. it might be stupid too

  6. all hail our 9 overlords. do bow fabulously!!11!!

  7. Wonder where the teletubby is, was it the purple one with the nipple rings?

  8. The comment Ernst mentioned is here.

  9. Bert and Ernie were modeled on Felix and Oscar, who were also definitely not gay.

    When I worked at a national park, I palled around a lot with one woman. We got along well enough that we did lots of stuff together, including spending a couple days in Mesquite at a hotel, lolling around, partaking of the buffet, swimming…

    Of course, in our closed community (we lived on site at the lodge) there was scuttlebutt about our being more than friends. I found it annoying that people had to go there, but such was the nature of that crowd. We didn’t adjust our behavior to dispel the rumors, either; we were both grown women who didn’t give a rip what wagging tongues had to say, especially since the job was seasonal and we knew that what they said had no bearing on our futures.

    Remember the complicated, interesting relationship between Mulder and Scully? The writers very deliberately made it Platonic, because it freed them up to explore the absolute trust that the unlikely pair had to put in each other, given that everyone else was against them or seemed to be.

    A relationship based on that kind of trust is qualitatively different from a relationship based on desire. When the writers gave in to the fans’ (SOME of the fans’) desire to see them “get together,” it didn’t enhance their relationship but made it stupid.

    Shippers ruin everything.

  10. For a long time I have told gays they are their own worse enemies. They spend huge amounts of time proclaiming to be ‘normal’, only to hold Pride Parades that are anything but. Then, we get the Left that uses any minority to establish it’s ideology. For as long as I have been conservative and accused by the Left of being a traitor to gays, I have argued conservatism is the natural home of gays. Left however is an ideology that preempts everything else.

    This kind of crap (the cover) is just another example of snatching one step forward and running backwards. Yet…I will say the same thing – never ascribe to stupidity what Leftism can explain.

    I don’t disagree that the Left wants to destroy institutions and break all non-governmental connections between individuals and communities and their traditions – but attacking THAT should be the goal.

  11. thumbs up tracycoyle. For the Left I have working on analogy “crazy quilt”. From wikipedia:

    Crazy quilting does not actually refer to a specific kind of quilting (the needlework which binds two or more layers of fabric together), but a specific kind of patchwork lacking repeating motifs. A crazy quilt rarely has the internal layer of batting that is part of what defines quilting as a textile technique.

    That is the Left, a no pattern patchwork calling itself a quilt, resembling a quilt, but not accomplishing the purpose of a quilt in keeping people warm.

  12. I don’t like the cover for many of the reasons stated above but, I think it is in the same category as the” fist bump” cover, meant to be a parody.

    Next up, spoofing the slippery slope argument with the Scooby Doo gang in a group marriage (bonus bestiality!).

  13. Bert and Ernie were modeled on Felix and Oscar, who were also definitely not gay.

    Ah, but they just couldn’t come out of the closet back in the early 70’s!

  14. Actually, I like the New Yorker cover illustration. I’ve always seen gay lovers as a bit unreal and almost cartoonish, and still I’m convinced that ‘gay marriage’ is but an attack on one of the necessary foundational pillars of a strong, moral society. This cover affirms that just a bit.

    We haven’t managed to strengthen the covenant of marriage, as defined for us for centuries, with this sudden and unwelcome ‘feel good for votes’ CHANGE that’s swept Democrats to cartoon land, now have we?

  15. Public Discourse nails…

    Marriage matters for children, for civil society, and for limited government. Marriage is the institution that unites a man and a woman as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children that their union produces. And that’s why the government is in the marriage business. Not because it cares about adult romance, but because it cares about the rights of children.

    If you believe, as we do, in the importance to children and to society of the marriage-based family, then of course you were hoping for different results in yesterday’s marriage cases. But you probably also put your trust in the institutions of civil society—in that vast arena between man and state which is the real stage for human development. And in that case, you never expected a court of law to do our work for us, to rescue a marriage culture that has been wounded for decades by cohabitation, out-of-wedlock child-bearing, and misguided policies like no-fault divorce. Your only question at 10:00 AM yesterday was whether the Supreme Court would leave us the political and cultural space to rebuild that culture, or get in the way.

    The answer was that the Court would leave us some space—for now. Five justices in United States v. Windsor have seen fit to put the republic on notice. While coy on state marriage laws, they have held that we the people—through overwhelming majorities in Congress and a Democratic President—somehow violated the Constitution in enacting the Defense of Marriage Act.

  16. I think we’re all homos on this bus.

  17. Bert and Ernie were modeled on Felix and Oscar, who were also definitely not gay.

    Yep … but would any revival of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple ever be staged unironically now?

  18. There’s been politically-driven assertions that Abe Lincoln was secretly gay because he had a very close same-sex friend and roomed with a guy and they :::gasp::: slept in the same bed!!

    and, well, look at Abe’s wife! Must have been a beard.

  19. On the Left there can be only two kinds of relationships between people.

    One is expressed in the phrase “the personal is political” which is about relationships that revolve around power. Who has it over who.

    The only other type of relationship is sexual and that only when the power of each over each is equal.

    They see no other ways that humans can relate to each other or that groups of humans can relate to humans or other groups. All is about lusts, for power and for sex.

  20. Why not use gay cartoon characters that are open and proud. See Venture Brothers.

    Shoreleave has to be the most awesome kickass (yes “kick”) gay character on TV, proud and unashamed.

    There is also “Al” The Alchemist who is the best understated gay character on TV. Kind of “yes, I am gay but, so what it does not define me” kind of character.

    Shoreleave also isn’t defined totally by his gayness either. Campy yes but, he’s a special ops professional first.

  21. we were both grown women who didn’t give a rip what wagging tongues had to say,

    Yes, age has some advantages. It does give us a perspective to tell the Mrs. Grundys to shove off.

    But, contrary to popular myth, children are and can be very cruel. And their targets don’t always have the emotional tools to not let it have an effect.

    If any kid reads Something Wicked This Way Comes are they now going to write a book report that Jim Nightshade and William Halloway were really gay lovers only closeted by the oppressive times Bradbury wrote in.

  22. “I think we’re all homos on this bus.”

    The word you are searching for is “Bozos”.

  23. Got a mouse in your pocket?

    While I agree with your sentiment, I despise this cover because children will end up seeing it. And they are living in a confused-enough Society right now, what with the Left’s takeover, corrupting, and falsification of all of it’s areas. Our children doen’t need one more view from the funhouse mirror to further exacerbate the Chaos that already envelopes them and draws them into the Living Hell that is depravity of the soul.

    This cover is insideous and monstrous.

  26. For a long time I have told gays they are their own worse enemies.

    Some gays just want to live their lives in peace; others want revenge.

  27. Bob, one of my “friends” posted that cover on her FB page and I made a similar observation about it.

    So far *crickets*

  28. Know what my favorite part of it is? That if you or Jeff or I or most anyone here ever suggested that there was any kind of homosexual subtext apparent with Bert and Ernie, we’d be lynched for it. You can say just about anything as long as you’re the right political color, so to speak. “Free speech” for thee, but not for me.

  29. This cover is insideous and monstrous.

    That cover’s what’s for dinner in Ameritopia.

    Kids influenced by that cover? It’s but a leaf floating on the Pacific Ocean, a tiny barely-noticeable fragment of the deluge of swill that we’ve allowed our kids to consume, for decades now, for so long that many of those kids have become monstrous adults for the consuming of it. And those monstrous adults are now in charge, teaching their open-minded kids that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any person loving any others’ personhood, there’s nothing wrong with anybody doing anything that makes them feeeel good n’ happy. What’s wrong? those who rage against easy livin’ and lovin’ and want want to deny our rights to live and love as we see fit, and those people are bigoted enough to point out that our culture is but rotted shit.

    Yes, we’ve lost the culture war; we’ve lost the political – ideological ‘war’ we’ve slept through for the most part; we’ve managed to allow this country to lose it’s founding principles and we’ve lost the children. The simple fact is, most coming-of-age Americans citizens could care less about what this country once stood for, could care less what principles we were founded on, but instead live they will be satisfied for what makes ‘em feel good in ‘the now’.

    A damned shame to have to realize it but most of our fellow citizens are liken to children who put their own self-gratification first, and will vote to keep their lives duly gratified. The warriors fighting for same-sex marriage fight for self-gratification and to assuage their emotional ties first. Their fight is to secure their ‘rights’, and so-called ‘principled conjugal traditional marriage’ be damned. “Kids? We can adopt them, or grow them in vats. We can raise kids up to be non-religious, perfect modern specimens of Ameritopia. Marriage? We will have our share of it, even if it kills your hateful religion-based institution!”

    So, that cover. Just wad it up and throw it back in their faces. Couple cartoon-figures pretending that their ‘love’ means anything more than a dawdle drawn in the sand. Won’t have any permanence to it over the long haul, that’s for sure.

  30. That cover’s what’s for dinner in Ameritopia.

    Kids influenced by that cover? It’s but a leaf floating on the Pacific Ocean, a tiny barely-noticeable fragment of the deluge of swill that we’ve allowed our kids to consume, for decades now, for so long that many of those kids have become monstrous adults for the consuming of it.

    Yep. That cover pales in comparison to the children being taught to assfuck each other…by the federal government.

    Besides, I don’t see the point. Barney’s a flaming homo and everybody has know that for years.

  31. And those monstrous adults are now in charge, teaching their open-minded kids that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any person loving any others’ personhood, there’s nothing wrong with anybody doing anything that makes them feeeel good n’ happy.

    Where have you gone, Mr. Jennings?
    Our schoolkids turn their lonely loins to you.
    Oooh, oooh, oooh.

  32. Tomatoes, tomahtoes.

  33. Damn well put, Serr8d.

  34. On the Left there can be only two kinds of relationships between people.

    Same kind of relationship. Same power dynamics.
